            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Humboldt County, Angela L. Doyle, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals the juvenile court decision terminating her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the termination of the mother’s parental rights is supported by clear and convincing evidence, no exception to termination should be applied, it would not be in the child’s best interests to give the mother additional time, and the State did not fail to engage in reasonable efforts.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
